BANDUNG - Head of BPPT Hammam Riza together with Director of Operations II of PT Len Industri Adi Sufiadi Yusuf inaugurated the operation of BPPT's fast charging station at the office of PT Len Industri (Persero), Bandung, Monday (23/12).
"This facility is the third BPPT fast charging station, two units previously located in Jakarta and Serpong," said Hammam.
The selection of SPKLU placement locations at PT Len Industri (Persero) Bandung, among others, is considering a collaboration plan with local industries to increase TKDN content and as a form of clearing technology for the use of long distance KBL (from Jakarta to out of town). SPKLU features installed are fast charging stations that can be used to plug in DC Chademo (50kW), DC CCS 2 (50 kW) and AC type 2 (43kW).
Adi in his official statement explained SPKLU with 50 kW power can do fast charging electric car batteries from 0% to 80% capacity in more or less 30 minutes.
"The construction of the SPKLU is expected to support the realization of the ecosystem and the use of electric cars in Indonesia. We will open it to the public with certain limitations because it is still for study. Aside from being a domestic SPKLU provider industry, in the field of electric cars Len also develops electric traction, because we have already for a long time also in traction and train propulsion which in principle does not differ much, "he explained.
In line with the issuance of Perpres No. 55 of 2019 on August 12, 2019 concerning the Acceleration of the Battery-Based Electric Motor Vehicle Program, BPPT is clearing fast charging station technology. The BPPT Initiation built two fast charging station units in the Jakarta BPPT Thamrin Building area and Serpong PUSPIPTEK Area at the end of 2018 as a driving force for the growth and development of the KBL ecosystem and its supporting infrastructure, including SPKLU.
The development of the SPKLU infrastructure requires the Government's commitment to fully support the initial phase so that a conducive KBL ecosystem can be formed, namely to achieve an economic value comparison between the availability of the number of KBL and the number of SPKLU.
"The government needs to make a minimum target population of the KBL as soon as possible, so that the occupancy rate of the charging station can be maximal, as an illustration, every 20,000 units of 4 wheeled KBL require a minimum of 1000 units of the fast charging station type," Hammam said.
Hammam further revealed that the role of BPPT in the SPKLU business is divided into two, namely in the upstream part to conduct technology clearing and technology transfer that will support the determination of technology standardization in SPKLU (in collaboration with BSN) and encourage the involvement of domestic industries through TKDN (in collaboration with PT Len Industries). In addition, in the downstream part, BPPT conducts assessment and application of SPKLU pilot projects as well as technology testing and auditing of various types of SPKLU both fast and ultra-fast chargers.
Present at the event were West Java Regional Secretariat Regional Secretary Dudi Sudrajat. "West Java Provincial Government is very supportive of this program because it will reduce carbon emissions and be a driver for efforts to prevent air pollution," he said.
